Madrid, 11th June 2018. Last week the IEEE International Symposium on Broadband Multimedia Systems and Broadcasting took place in Valencia, Spain, from the 6th-8th June. It was the 13th in the series and it is the premier forum for the presentation and exchange of technical advances in the rapidly converging areas of multimedia broadcasting, telecommunications, consumer electronics, and networking technologies.

The symposium was organized by the Institute of Telecommunications and Multimedia Applications (iTEAM) of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV). 2018 is said to be the year of the first normative specifications of the fifth generation of wireless systems 5G, and IEEE BMSB 2018 was co-located with a one-day tutorial on emerging 5G broadcast technologies and applications by the 5G-PPP project 5G-Xcast. IEEE BMSB 2018 counted also  with a number of workshops on 5G organized by several 5G-PPP projects, such as 5G-CORAL and 5G-TRANSFORMER.

On the first day, from 16:20-18:00 the 4B Session took place: 5G Transport (5G Transformer, 5G Coral, 5GEx Workshop). The program was the following:


Enabling new multicast distribution architectures through the introduction of IGMP/MLD proxy with multiple upstream interfaces ( abstract )

Understanding QoS applicability in 5G transport networks ( abstract )

Multi-domain VNF mapping algorithms ( abstract )

Towards a resilient OpenFlow channel through MPTCP ( abstract )

An Integrated, Virtualised joint Edge and Fog computing system with multi-RAT convergence ( abstract )

Sergio Gonzalez presenting “Towards a resilient OpenFlow channel through MPTCP”



Luca Cominardi presenting “An Integrated, Virtualized joint Edge and Fog comuting system with multi-RAT convergence”
